Just the man to fill Johnny Depp's shoes.

Since Johnny will be busy battling Pirates for Disney come this fall, Terry Gilliam was forced to find someone to replace him in his latest flick, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.

Terry revealed while at Cannes this weekend that he has decided on Ewan McGregor for the part. Ewan plays opposite Robert Duvall, who will play Quixote, as "a 21st century advertising executive who travels back in time to 17th century Spain, where he meets Don Quixote and becomes involved in adventures with him."

Of the project, Terry admits:

"Robert Duvall is one of the greats, no question - and he can ride a horse! And Ewan has gotten better over the years. He was wonderful in The Ghost. There's a lot of colours to Ewan that he's not been showing recently and it's time for him to show them again. He's got a great sense of humour and he's a wonderful actor. He's wonderfully boyish and can be charming - when he flashes a smile, everybody melts. He wields it like a nuclear bomb!"

Oh don't we know it!

Sounds like it will be a good role for Ewan! We're excited for him!

    Oh how I love Ewan. Ever since way back in Trainspotting. Yes I know it is a weird film to get a crush on someone but he just has that grin that just gets you. I am excited for this.

    Like RDJ and Johnny Depp, everything is better with Ewan McGregor!

    Hasn't Gilliam's Quixote project been killed repeatedly? Whatever, it will probably look great but ultimately suck, like so many of his films.
